The name seems to me very Swedish, although it was sold under this name from Bystrup Planter in Denmark as well as from Paul Shirley in Holland. The name of the islands in English is Maluku Islands or the Moluccas. They are however called Maluku Utera locally, so to me Hoya sp. Maluku would be more appropriate. I recieved my specimen without collection number so I don't know from where it came originally.

Hoya sp. Molukken reminds me a lot of Hoya sp. aff. halophila, however the leaves as well as the general structure of the plant is more rigid. It would probably do just fine growing on a trellis, although I keep mine in a hanging basket.
